PSN is designed to create and foster safer neighborhoods through a sustained reduction in violent crime, including, but not limited to, addressing criminal gangs and the felonious possession and use of firearms. The program's effectiveness depends on the cooperation and partnerships of local, state, tribal, and federal agencies engaged in a unified approach led by the U.S. Attorney (USA) in all 94 districts. Acting decisively at all levels-- federal, state, local, and tribal-- will help reverse a rise in violent crime and keep American citizens safe. PSN provides the critical funding, resources, and training for law enforcement, prosecutors, and their PSN teams to combat violent crime and make their communities safer through a comprehensive approach to public safety that marries targeted enforcement efforts with community engagement, prevention, and reentry efforts.
